Re: Multisite HACK for 2.2.3 Final
Will msHack 2.2.3F function with 2.2.4 core system?
Yes, as a User I certify that the Multisite works WITHOUT any problem with 2.2.4! The only stupid thing in the 2.2.4 is that the extended profiles module will not offer any Group function in the Admin to transfer users from one to anathor. The permission features remains untouched. It is only the form that stops working.
I sincerly beleive that this is a bug of a very low degree and should be absolutely easy to remove. However, since I have been the only one to speak about it, the core developers have shown adamont behaviour not to listen and iron the bug.
There are also serious reasons behind it. The software is ofcourse affered for free as open source. Also the core developers are heavily interested to really bringout a new version of 2.3. So the time available is mostely invested in the new version, which is perfectly understandable!
Hence, I warn you about using the 2.2.4 at all! If the custom fields are more than about 25 extra fields then the module shows strange behaviour!!! Be warned and do not cry later afterwards. However, this has nothing to do with Multisites.
Has anyone developed a tool to merge existing databases into a single database for users, profiles, groups, ranks, etc..?
You seem to miss the understanding of the Multisites Module. This tiny little module has gigantic potential, ridiculous enough. Once you start using it, you shall realise how clever people are hanging around in the CORE development and will beginn to appreciate.
However you may have to undergo an extra-ordinary pain of frustration in configuring, - if you did not follow the basics - out of the very very little and superficial documentation out there. The great Hero "Mitrandir" has developed this great "Star" Module and did not write very much of documentation or atleast a very confusing documention for beginners.
Hence, I would offer to help you out for very basic questions witth a hope to substitute his or others time, as I did undergo or was forced to undergo the pains and frustrations arising out of it, which seems to be also programmed unknowingly and unintentionally! They shall imediately vanish the moment things start working and you will appreciate it for a very long time, which is the only thing programmed intentionally.
I write this hoping that Jan reads my message and works on a better module + docs!!!
